Far Greater, Pt 1 - No. 57

Numbers 24:7, “His king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted.”HH

Just as the term Pharaoh was used for all the kings of Egypt, so Agag was used for the kings of the Amalekites who were the most powerful of all the desert tribes. The God of the Israelites was greater than all gods.

He is the great God, the ruler of the universe. His ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. And yet so often we bring God down to the level of our puny thinking. We run to the counsel of the world before we seek His infinite counsel.  We live in doubt and fear rather than acknowledging His ultimate sovereignty and Lordship. We pattern ourselves according to the fashion of this world rather than lining ourselves up with God’s Ways.

Who is our God? He is greater than Agag. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom that will not pass away. It shall never be destroyed and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.  I think it would be a good idea to remind ourselves of the taskmaster from whom we have been delivered and the might of our great God whom we now serve. Lift up your eyes and praise your God.
